Quick Tomato Sauce for Isolyn Duncan

A few weeks back I had this wonderful young woman in one of my Viking classes, the event was a wedding shower.  We made home made ravioli’s  and a quick and easy tomato sauce….I promised her and her friends that I would post the recipe … sorry it’s taken me a while, but here you go…and btw…thank you so much for the thoughtful card and calendar….

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 small shallot, finely diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 cup red wine

2 cans diced tomatoes

1/2 teaspoon basil

1/2 teaspoon oregano

black pepper to taste

In a medium saucepan heat oil over medium low heat.  Add shallots, garlic, fennel seeds and red pepper flakes.  Cook until transparent, about 5 minutes.  Deglaze with red wine and add remaining ingredients.  Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes.  Serve over pasta!  Enjoy and I wish you and Jairus a wonderful wedding and a very long healthy and happy life together as husband and wife!!!
